If there is one thing that gets us excited is weddings. Todays wedding, in particular, is one that we had been so excited to capture. We love cultural weddings!!!! We love seeing how different cultures celebrate one of the most important days of their lives! When Mehak contacted us and asked us to capture her wedding day, we of course said yes! From the minute we sat down with Mehak and her mother we felt the love! They didn’t just love our pictures but they loved us, our story and our family and really wanted US to be there! Once it was official. Once the date was set and it was set in stone, all we could do was count down the days for their wedding day at the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress to finally arrive.
The clock struck twelve and the festivities were over. It was time to see the bride and groom off. In their culture the family walk side by side with them to the getaway car. Her father grabbed her hand. With tears in his eyes. Proud tears. Tears of joy. He walked with her side by side out to the getaway car. As I looked at her father. It seemed like the longest walk he had ever taken. A walk that carried him through a time machine. Back to the moment he first held her in his arms. To the moment she took her first step. The moment she first said Papa. To this very moment. The moment he saw her off with her new husband. The new man in her life. Her future. He looked at his daughter and said
“These are tears of joy”
We understood him completely. The bitter sweet feeling he had. Having to let go but wondering how the heck did time fly by so quickly. How did he go from swaddling her in a blanket. His little girl. To seeing her stand before him as a grown woman. Someones wife. She looked at him and hugged him so tightly as if to say
“You will always be the first man I loved”
